Yep, Wyoming is smack in the middle of the Rocky Mountain west. Thus, there are miles and miles of open space. Once you get on the road, it easily can be 60 miles or more to the nearest gas station. But don't let that scare you - just plan ahead. With virtually no traffic you can get places quicker than you think. It was with that in mind that our family embarked on a weekend whirlwind tour of the Devil's Tower/Black Hills.
First stop, Devil's Tower. Five hours from Laramie, raining, cold, gray... but still glad we came!
Maybe not everyone's idea of family vacation, but I loved being able to share the experience with our kids - no matter how cold and shivery!
